6:18pm
standard. >> reporter: kauai humane society is inundated for dogs. it's not unusual for a person drop off a dozen or more puppies at one time. >> if we had a puppy here at the shelter it's usually adopted in a day or two. but over there they don't have that many people that are able to adopt and animals can sit for several months at a time. >> reporter: in december the shelter in kauia and the shelter here began a program. the dogs are brought to the spca and eventually adopted out. >> so far we've had 12 dogs since december. and they've all been adopted except pauly. >> reporter: travelers said they would be happy to chaperone the dog. >> absolutely. we do go to hawaii very often and i'm a huge alaska member. so i would greatfully help that
6:19pm
out. >> reporter: at this point the shelter is only taking one dog from hawaii per week. they say these dogs don't impact their ability to adopt out any local dogs. this is one cute pooch here. so still looking for a home. we're live here in oakland, christien kafton, ktvu channel two news? a majority of facebook users have taken a break from the site. the research study says 60% of users have suspended their use of facebook for a week or more. people say they are just too busy to keep up. some say they are tired of the drama. others say they spend too much time on the site. privacy and security issues are low on that list of concerns. and we're tracking the large earthquake that occurred down in the southern hemisphere. let's take a look at it. large 8.0. they are in this whole area out
6:20pm
here there's tsunami warnings in such in there area and such. we're watching closely to see if anything gets triggered for hawaii because that would be a trigger for us. maybe we can see something in the west coast. when i say triggered, tsunami watch center will issue a tsunami watch but we have not seen that yet. so here's how it breaks down for us. we have some showers moving through the forecast tomorrow. as they do -- not tomorrow on thursday. as they do the clouds will begin to increase. tomorrow is your okay day. we start off with clouds and low clouds. more sunshine tomorrow wednesday than we had today. then we get into thursday and the clouds increase. they thicken up. we get a chance for showers. but we will get showers. but that does not make rainfall season there. .05 to 2.5 and .25. that's optimistic. i think most of us will see .1 to .50 of an inch as this system lumbers through very
6:21pm
quickly. here's how this computer system sees it. tomorrow is a nice day. a little fog in the valley. here comes thursday morning commute. 7:00a.m. thursday morning. you got wet roadways. it's in the south bay at :00 a.m. then it moves on. you can tell how widely scattered, it should be a strong rain producer in terms of inches of rain but more like .00 of inches of rain. this is a cold system and that's why we're getting these sort of sparse rainfall. this is the lowest it can get. snow is going to be down there in the western area. snow accumulations they get three or four inches. that will be for them. the forecast for highs a little warmer than today. tomorrow is going to be a nice day. then sunday or not sunday. then on thursday. >> wishful thinking. >> i'm thinking about the tsunami weather center. if they trigger something in
6:22pm
hawaii we have to think about, what are they thinking. >> keep us posted on that. thank you bill. coming up on bay area news at 7:00 on tv 36. an update on the news we're following in the north bay where there are reports of three bodies founded in a home. >> the writing on the pavement reads bus only but in a few years it could be bikes only on either side of mission street. we'll tell you about the transit change san francisco city leaders are considering. >> join us at 7:00 on tv 36. >> we're going to take a short break, back in a moment.
6:23pm
6:24pm
when i take a picture of this check, it goes straight to the bank. oh. oh look the lion is out! no mommy no! don't worry honey, it only works on checks. deposit checks from your smartphone with chase quickdeposit. just snap a picture, hit send and done. take a step forward and chase what matters.
6:25pm
continuing coverage on breaking news. >> ken pritchett has just arrived on the scene. ken what have you learned. >> reporter: unfortunately we don't have very much information at all. that's because investigators have not yet been made available to talk to us. we were outside the residence where the crime scene tape is strong. and we are waiting for a public information officer to come over. we have been told that they know the press is here and that at some point they are going to come over and give us some information. we have not been able to confirm whether three people were shot and killed here
6:26pm
although those are the reports that are coming out. a command posthas been set up by the sonoma county sheriff's department. and investigators are here at the scene. flood lights are shut off because it is now dark. my understanding is the location the shooting took place, the reported shootings took place is about 100-yard beyond the crime tape where we are. there's a second house out of our view here at the driveway that is apparently down a hill and surrounded by some rather dense vegetation. and that is where crime scene investigators are working right now. gathering evidence and presumably taking pictures and trying to if i can -- trying to figure out exactly what happened here. in addition to having little information ability victims we know nothing at all about suspects. we're going to remain here and gather as much information as we can. once we have something we will pass it along at 7:00 and tonight on the 10:00.
6:27pm
news. we're in unincorporated sobasta pool. >> thank you ken. it's going to be a long night over there for investigators and ken. and mark join us. a very emotional day for the 49ers cleaning out their lockers. >> bittersweet you might say. certainly not the farewell that fellow 49ers wanted to have with their teammates as we go to the santa clara locker room scene that you see most every year. some of the equipment people folding up the jerseys and packing it up for next year of course. and a lot of the players saying their final goodbyes and signing various items. and there is vernon davis who had a sensational super bowl. but they didn't get the prize they wanted. however coach harbaugh decided to look to the future instead of dwelling on the past. >> next for our team is, some r
6:28pm
& r. i think our players, our coaches have spent everything they have at this point. and a couple of weeks to recharge the battery. but also thinking, thinking while we're doing that on how to get an edge. everybody is going to want to have a lens to look at this season or look at this last game or the final plays of the game. but, our lens really has to be, it's the toughest one to look through is how can, how can i improve? >> that's going to take some time. here's some rough video for 49er fans to look at. this was supposed to be on market street in san francisco. the super bowl parade but instead it's back in baltimore. as the ravens celebrate their super bowl. hard fought victory and you have to say deserved victory for them and there is the lombardy trophy making it through some of the fans. this is just tough video for 49er fans and i'm sure the
6:29pm
players to look at too. because that parade was supposed to be -- >> it sure was. >> it was almost here. 5yards away. >> yeah, 5 yards and -- >> yeah, right. i like the spot. it will be some day. >> a reminder we're following that development situation. the very latest on bay area news at 7:00 on tv 36 and tonight on the 10:00 news. thanks for joining us.
